Each square corresponds to a numbered quiz question (1 thru 36). To see the object, leave all the squares whose answer contains one or more upper case letters blank. Color in the remaining squares. (If you want to make your own grid, using Excel or a similar program, the parameters should be: height 36, width 4).

Ronoca’s epiphany: “I’m not sure what it’s called, but ________________________”

To find the rest of Ronoca’a answer, fill in the grid below with the answers to the following 4 questions (no spaces between words). Then simply answer the multiple- choice questions, substituting the letters for the corresponding symbols.
